Students took a break from their books and assignments today as Collège Boréal hosted its 20th Winter Carnival. The student association, AGEE, organized a variety of activities including past favorites and some new events.
Winter enthusiasts had plenty of outdoor activities to choose from, including snowshoeing, street hockey, lumberjack games, a bon fire, horse-drawn wagon rides, and ice sculptures.
Those who did not want to brave the cold enjoyed games and live music in the cafeteria. Staff members and students were also invited to partake in volleyball and badminton scrimmages, in the gym.
A variety of tasty refreshments were available throughout the day including chili, Beavertails, and cupcakes served by the school’s mascot La Vipère! Three hot chocolate stations had been set up for students looking to warm up – or score a sweet treat!
“College life is not only about studying and working hard. It is also a time to make new friends and to have fun. Our winter carnival allows students to engage in student life and build relationships while enjoying some winter fun!”
